Mr. ROSS (Kingston):

The point I want to make when the matter comes up for discussion again is that this is only shifting the responsibility in this matter. I will criticise the department in this respect, and at the same time I shall have some suggestions to offer as to how the department could carry its responsibility and still relieve itself of a good deal of its burden. At present, however, the minister says there are only two such institutions. Are there any tubercular cases in Gravenhurst?

In Victoria we have two medical representatives, one is on full time and one on part time; and in Kamloops we have one representative on part time. This makes a total for that unit of ten on full time and twelve on part time.
